Dr. Rosalind Schoppet, Ed.D
Dr. Rosalind Schoppet is a dedicated educator with over 20 years' experience in early childhood and elementary education. She earned her Bachelor of Science degree in early education in 1997, going on to earn her Master of Arts in leadership education in 2000 and Doctor of Education in 2008. Dr. Schoppet's teaching certifications include Elementary Education (1-8), Principal (K-8), Superintendent (K-12), and Special Education.
Rosalind's love of learning dates back to her childhood – not surprising, since her father was also a teacher. She loves spending time with children, especially her own amazing kids. Of course, now that her kids are in high school, Rosalind has more time for her favorite hobbies: reading and playing with her two dogs, Junior and Rudy.
Originally from Missouri, Rosalind is an avid St. Louis Cardinals fan, so Cubs fans beware!
